The Foundation envisions the Library as a cornerstone of our community’s high quality of life.


Welcome to the Bozeman Public Library Foundation!

The Foundation envisions the Library as a cornerstone of our community's high quality of life through exceptional visitor experiences and innovative programs. An active and successful Library Foundation turns a good library into a great library. The Bozeman Public Library is a GREAT library.

Join us on April 18 for the 8th annual Cornerstone Celebration: Honoring Arts & Ideas fundraiser, 6:30pm in the Library mezannine. You won't be disappointed with "A Night in Italy"! This is an evening of new and renewed friendships, a time to be inspired by all the good work done by the Library Staff and Foundation, and a way to give back so the Library can continue to be the heart of our community. This year's Cornerstone Award winner is Kelly Roberti. He will be honored during the event for his tireless work promoting music and the arts through his weekly Library series Jazz & More...with Kelly Roberti. This year he reached his 100th program -- one of our longest running and most popular programs at the Library! Please call Sarah to reserve your spot, 582-2425.

If you want to "talk libraries" please don't hesitate to chat with me, Paula (look left). I like nothing more than to talk about books, events for the community, and all the partnerships and collaborations that the Foundation fosters – I'd LOVE to talk with you! Stop by my office upstairs in the Library or call 582-2426.

Many opportunities and challenges lie ahead. The rapid pace of technological advances brings rapid change, but we believe public libraries will be at the forefront of this change, shaping and leading our communities.

Only libraries can offer free services, materials, and expertise to the communities they serve, regardless of age, gender, ethnicity, or financial status. Join with us in our mission of keeping our Library relevant and ready to be at the forefront of the 21st Century.
